Psalms 109:24

My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh lacks fatness.
Read Chapter 109

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
24. "I became also a reproach unto them" (ver. 24): through the death of the Cross. "For Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us." "They looked upon Me, and shaked their heads." Because they beheld His crucifixion, without beholding His resurrection: they saw when His knees were weakened, they saw not when His flesh was changed.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Heads, and saying, Vah (Matthew xxvii. 40.) as Semei insulted David, (2 Kings xvi. 5.; Calmet) though he is not said to have shaken his head, for which reason the prophecy may rather relate solely to Christ. (Berthier) "To pay our ransom, he was crucified; to be crucified, he was despised; and to be despised, he appeared in a state of abjection. "(St. Augustine) These three steps were requisite, as the Jews would never have dared to lay hands on him, if he had appeared in glory. (Berthier)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
